EX Team Magma Vs Team Aqua is the name of the fourth expansion to the EX Series of Pokemon Trading Card Game. It was initially released in Japan as Magma VS Aqua: 2 Ambitions. This subset is the only one in the Pokemon Card Game ADV Era. It's based on Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire and features Generation III Pokemon and the offensive teams of Team Magma (Hoenn region) and Team Aqua (Hoenn region). The English expansion was published on March 15, 2004, and the Japanese subset on October 24, 2003.
EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua introduced dual-type Pokemon. This is where Pokemon can have a secondary kind. The owner's Pokemon returned. EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua brings 95 new cards into the Pokemon-e Trading Card Game. Many of these cards belong to either Team Magma or Team Aqua. These two groups are committed to conquering the world by controlling the land and sea. Some of the Pokemon have been trained by both teams to be dual-typed, which makes them very dangerous! Some of their Pokemon have been trained to be proficient in specific attacks according to their team's philosophies. This kind of intense training is time-consuming and requires a lot of effort. Normal Pokemon cannot evolve into or from Team Magma Pokemon. These new rules bring new strategies!
Team Magma (Team Aqua) has started training Dual Energy-type Pokemon. Dual-type Pokemon can have two types at once, making them more likely to exploit the Weakness of another Pokemon. This expansion adds the Darkness type to all dual-type Pokemon, and they can then use Darkness Energy for increased damage. Except for Team Aqua's Walrein (3/95) and Team Magma's Aggron (3/95), dual-type Pokemon only have one Weakness. Except for Team Aqua's Manectric (4/95), there is no Resistance in dual-type Pokemon.
Team Magma's Pokemon can be attacked to cause damage to Active and Benched Pokemon. Team Magma's Claydol (33/95) ‘s Clay Curse allows you to place two damage counters against your opponent's Pokémon in any way you choose. Team Magma's Aron (59/95) ‘s Dig Under inflicts ten damage on your opponent's Pokemon, regardless of resistance. To exploit Team Magma's advantage, you can injure any of your opponent's most dangerous Pokemon, and many attacks cause additional damage or special conditions to Pokemon already injured.
Combining the two attacks will have maximum impact! For example, Team Magma's Lairon (36/95) will deal 40 damage combined with the Land Sonic attack. It will also confuse Defending Pokemon that have damage counters! Consider Team Magma's Houndoom (34-55) ‘s Damage Burn. If the Defending Pokemon has damage counters, the attack does 40 damage and 20 more damage.
You might also consider using older Pokemon with bench-hitting abilities like Xatu (EX Sandstorm 55/100) when you team up with Team Magma Pokemon. Xatu places a damage counter against each opponent's Pokemon, which guarantees that your Team Magma Pokemon will be able to use their damage-amplifying attack on the next turn. Xatu has no Retreat Cost, so that you can make a Benched TeamMagma Pokemon Active for free!
Team Magma Hideout Stadium cards will also work great for Team Magma's Pokémon. Your opponent can play a Basic Pokemon without Team Magma written on it from their hand. This player will put one damage counter against that Pokemon, and team Magma Pokemon may immediately gain different effects from their attacks!
